  • How Competent Are You!?

    I remember being at the end of my second year of college and wondering what the hell I was going to major in.  At the time, I was under the impression that what you majored in was what you were going to be doing for the rest of your life.  Me, who hates making big decisions, was really stressing out about it.  I remember being at a friend’s house and sitting outside with her dad.  I started ranting about it and how stressed out I was.  I remember him stopping me half-way through my rant and simply said, “It doesn’t matter.”  I was shocked.  I mean by the size of their house and where they lived, he’d obviously been successful with his career path.  He continued by saying, “It doesn’t matter what you major in.  Just pick something.  The only thing a college diploma does is prove you’re competent  to learn.”
